libdbx gives readdbx & readoe. Both can be used to convert Microsoft Outlook Express mail box-files/directories to mbox - which can then be imported in fx. Sylpheed mail client.

Code:
# readdbx -h         
readdbx - Extract emails from MS Outlook Express 5.0 DBX files into mbox format.
File is taken from stdin unless -f is specified.
Output emails are written to stdout unless -o is specified

Usage: readdbx [OPTIONS]
Options:
        -h           display this help and exit
        -V           output version information and exit
        -f "file"    input DBX file
        -o "file"    file to write mbox format to
        -q           don't display extra information

Code:
# ./readoe -h
readoe - Extract emails from MS Outlook Express 5.0 directory into mbox format files
Usage: readoe [OPTIONS] -i INDIR -o OUTDIR
Options:
        -h              display this help and exit
        -V              output version information and exit
        -i "indir"      input directory containing "Folders.dbx"
        -o "outdir"     directory to put converted files. Files will be named the
                        same as the input ones. eg. Inbox.dbx
        -q              display no extra information whilst processing

Subject description: missing dbentries error
 

Hi, I clicked to install this and PPM is failing to install into my Slacko 5.6 frugal setup. It is complaining about missing dbentries in in a file petget_missing_dbentries-Packages-alien in /tmp.

Here is the file contents:

libdbx-1.0.4|libdbx|1.0.4|||||libdbx-1.0.4.pet|||

Which looks to me like it should work but I am no "pet" expert.

So I just changed the filename extension from .pet to .tgz. Then opened it with PupZip and got the files out of it that way. And was able to use readdbx to help me convert a dbx to mbox. Very Happy

But I thought maybe you would want to know for other users trying to install this.
